I found an email today with a promo join offer for a new site Rylsky Art featuring the work of one of Met-Art's top photographers Rylsky. He's been one of the most prolific contributers at Met in recent times with a new Rylsky set being added almost every day or two. I'm wondering now if the new Rylsky sight will see a gradual decline in his work being show-cased at Met-Art.
The new Rylsky site only has about a month's worth of updates so I couldn't decide if it's worth a subscription yet even at the $7.99 promo price I was offered but the $15 cross-sell to rejoin Met-Art that comes with it might just clinch the deal
A few changes at PP over the past six months or more. They went through a bit of a phase of models who, for some reason, didn't do much for me - perhaps too glam, losing the intimacy or voyeurism that made the material so appealing.
Things seem to have picked up a bit now, with very attractive, recent models, and again more intimate themes and sets - getting dressed, make-up and the like, which work for me.
Note, though, that updates are less frequent - from daily down to every 3 days at the moment. That's still pretty good for a $15 site and is still good value but if I re-review it, my score may drop a couple of points for that reason.
1. MET-Art (originally Most Erotic Teens) is a softcore pornography website owned by HLP General Partners Incorporated of Santa Monica, California. The site features erotic photographs of partially or completely naked women, and has been online since circa 1999.
2. Not to be confused with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
But much easier to visit than the New York City museum. And the price to visit the online site is much cheaper.
3. Headquarters: Santa Monica, California
Parent HLP General Partners, INC
It surprises me that the headquarters are in Santa Monica, California.
Almost all the models used in the early years of Met-Art were Eastern European girls.
And the photographers were mainly from Europe, as well.
Most of the models are still from Eastern Europe.
And most of the photographers are still from Europe.
What I want to really know:
If I drive down to Santa Monica, California, how many of the Met-Art girls will I be able to meet?
My guess is: Zero to none, since the site uses very few models from the United States, and almost all the photoshoots are done in Europe.
Can anyone explain to me the benefit of having a headquarters in Santa Monica, California? Versus some place in Europe. I can understand not locating in Russia or some area around there, because the authorities might turn against porn and shut the operation down or force it to move. The same thing happened with Abby Winters in Australia, I think, which is why Abby Winters moved from Australia to Europe.
I too subscribed to this site a few years back. Apart from the foreign language, I believe It's based in the Czech Republic, I was extremely impressed with the quality and length of the scenes. The girls are stunningly sexy and there are some very kinky scenes indeed!
When you download a photoset of a model, it includes a small bio sheet for the model.
The model sheet includes:
And maybe a few small details about what the model likes or is doing.
The age of the model refers to the age she was at the time the photoset was posted to the site. (I believe that's what it's supposed to refer to. Less probable, it was the age the model was at the time of the photo shoot.)
Anyway, the computer program that is responsible for printing out the bio sheet has been, in error, I believe, now set up to print the age the model is currently.
On the Metart site, there is a bio section for each model, and that section gives the current age of the model.
But the downloaded bio sheet, that comes with a specific photoset, is supposed to give the age of the model at the time the photoset was posted to the site.
Instead, it now gives the current age of the model.
Met-Art is probably the biggest site for softcore teen photography, based on content.
And the site just keeps getting bigger. They add up to 6 photosets and videos per day. I don't know of any softcore teen photo site that comes close to that in terms of updates.
But over the years, they also tinker with the site to make it user friendly. They have a massive amount of content, but I feel the site is very easy to use.
One example of how they to make the contents more accessible/user friendly:
Years ago, the naming system for zip downloads of photosets used a combination of letters and numbers. Then they switched to a different system, where the filenames were much longer, but that tried to describe the file contents more clearly. The system they use now is much improved:
It gives the site name, the date the photoset was posted at Met-Art, the name of the photoset, the model(s) featured in the photoset, the photographer, and the definition of the photoset (low, medium, or high).
Would be a photoset posted on 2011-05-08, with the title, "Presenting Felicia", featuring the model Felicia B, by the photographer Dolce, and the definition is high.
Personally, I would rather that the name of the model comes before the name of the photoset. And I would prefer the date of the set comes before the name of the photoset. For example:
Felicia B-2011.05.08-Presenting Felicia
That would make more sense, and make it easier to categorize, as far as I can see.
Because when you are looking over your photosets, you want to know who the model is, when the photoset was posted, and then the name of the photoset.
I pay less attention to who the photographer is. And I try to keep all the Met-Art sets in a common group for Met-Art.
But it's nice that Met-Art tries, on a constant basis, to make the site more user-friendly.
I visit Met-Art more often than I go to any museum. For one, it's easier to visit. For another, the contents are more interesting. For another, Met-Art is like a museum, that is cultural, uplifting, and stimulates the mind.
There are very few porn sites that fit that description.
If you've been a member of Met Art previously or are on their mailing list you might find an email in your inbox offering free access to Sexart. I've already checked it out and it certainly seems to be a genuine offer. It's actually a free 2 day trial through CCBill so you don't need to worry about any dirty tricks. As far as I can tell it's a full access free trial, I've been downloading to my heart's content for a couple of hours without any restrictions or limitations.
I'm only really interested in the photo collection so as it's still a relatively new site it only took me a couple of hours to go through the collection and download all the photo sets I wanted so it wouldn't really be worth paying a full month from my point of view. Still I got around 100 photo sets in total including some of my favorite Met Art models like Dido, Caprice A, Milena D and Mia Sollis.
The free trial renews at $29.99 if not cancelled so if you want to stick around for the month better to cancel and sign up from the PU link for $19.99. I won't bother with a review on this one as I seem to remember some PU rule about reviews not being able to be based on free access to a site.
This is not a news flash. They've always been boring.
I get more fun watching some commercials than I get out of watching most Metart videos. How do they make videos of beautiful, lovely models getting undressed so boring?
Many of their photosets are alluring, lovely, outstanding, really gorgeous to look at.
But my main question is: why can the Metart photosets be so alluring? And at the same time, their videos so boring?
Separately, when the downloaded Metart videos play back, there is sometimes a mosaic effect where the colors are sometimes pixellated, and that is just another distracting effect. What causes this? I don't get this effect watching videos I download from Diesel network or Teen Mega World or other sites I download from.
I don't have a gaming computer, that is set up for fast visual effects. But my laptop, and my desktop, are both fairly new, within the last year, so I should be able to play back even the 1080p videos with no problems, I would think.
I've been thinking about joining this site for a while but they seem to be increasingly abandoning the CFNM concept from their latest previews - more and more the models are engaging in full sex and the women end up partly or completely naked.
Seems a bit pointless, and it ends up being a regular sex site and the whole CFNM concept is lost. CF is supposed to stand for CLOTHED Female!
The content at Gyno-X is first rate, high quality, hot girls, upclose action. The cost on the other hand is border-line outrageous. The best deal is the 3-months for $69 USD. But they want an extra $19 USD for the archival content! Also they make you stay continuously a member (pay) for at least 3 consecutive months before access is given to the Extras. On the other hand, Exclusive Club allows you full access to their content for a slightly less expensive cost ($59 USD for 3-months). The quality of production is slightly less than Gyno-X but a better value. In general, all these gyno sites charge a lot for a slow update schedule compared to the multinetwork sites (BangBros, PornPros, Brazzers, etc.).
I don't know why but it kind of surprised me when I found out that this site was part of the same company that runs Mature.nl and a bunch of others. $50+ for a month? For that price Granny should bring one of her young lovers to my house and perform live.
Once again, if you are thinking of joining 21Sextury because of this site, because you are a fan of Sophie Moone, you should know that this site is updated very unfrequently: approximately once a month for the last nine or ten months.
This doesn't mean that you won't get many Sophie Moone sets: on the contrary, this site contains almost 500 of them: mostly lesbian and solo sets, and a few with a guy screwing a girl, and Sophie participating in some way (but never getting screwed, she doesn't do that any longer). A huge archive, but it looks like we will get fewer and fewer updates...
If this site is your main reason to join the 21st Sextury network, you should know that it is not updating any more. The last update was in February, and it was a "backstage" video; the previous one before that was in December 2011. In total, there are 112 scenes in the archive, and it looks like that's all there is ever going to be... so it's up to you to decide if it's enough to join or not.
Very difficult to cancel monthly fee. Hegre-Art Staff doesn't respond back to emails. Error message with redirect when trying to cancel. Have not been able to get any help from webmaster or billing company.
Very disappointed in lack of customer service. Why do companies continue to conduct business like they are on the hustle. I would have expected more from this company.
I received a 1/2 off offer to vivthomas.com expiring on August 15th. I tried the link several times and it always came up full price. I tried contacting web support for vivthomas.com to no avail. I love this site and wanted the half-off offer to join, but I don't like getting jerked around by false advertising either. It's a shame. They have great content, but this is a terrible business practice.
Update--The vthelpcenter had replied promptly. I simply have not received the email. Mia culpa. Their customer service was on the ball. Thanks Nick!
I have a 2 month membership so I will give them the full 2 months before reviewing it since my review wouldn't be that fair or even that positive right now.
The quality is very high. I really like the photo sets as well. The ones I have downloaded top out near 6000 long end on the pictures.
Video quality is very high as well, though a little confusing. I don't know if they are doing something to optimize bitrates/file size, but full length 1920x1080 files are only 200-300 MB.
One reason the video files are small is because the time of the videos. I haven't seen a video over 20 minutes yet and the average seems to be in the 14-15 minute range.
As I had worried would be the case, the picture sets are better than the videos. I believe the basis of this site is really good, but it's going to take nearly perfect execution to pull it off. Most of the models, especially females, are younger 18-22 range, and I'm not for sure how believable an 18-22 year old can be when it comes to passionate sex.
To my surprise, there isn't much dialogue or story with the scenes which was something I was expecting a lot of. On the other hand, there is the Kamikaze Love series, which I downloaded all of, only to end up deleting all of because it was like watching an HBO after dark movie.
I will give it the two months before reviewing it with the chance maybe their steady updates will start showing some improvement.
Joined the site Aug 5th thru CCBill. I didn't capture the username and password provided by the site after successful billing (entirely used to receiving them by email immediately after subscribing).
When I clicked on the subscription email sent by CCBill the Username/Password fields were blank.
I've opened two tickets with euroteenmovs.com 'support' and heard absolutely nothing since. CCBill was kind enough to reply within an hour of my inquiry to tell me they didn't have the login info and that I should contact the website's 'support' directly.
